This is one of the best smallmouth bass lakes in the country. For numbers and big fish, it’s tough to beat Lake St. Clair. This lake can be tough on first time anglers due to the fact that it’s a fairly flat late that lacks the obvious structure that most good smallmouth bass lakes have. It’s just one of those lakes where you need to cover some water to find the active bass and once you find them, you may catch fish up to and above 6 pounds on this lake. Fish in the 2 to 4 pound range are common on Lake St. Clair.
